Only for me

When it's getting cold, I love to sit on the couch and knit or crochet little things. I sewed some bags to store my wool away. The little bag is for my needles, scissors and my measuring tape. In the bigger bag I store my pullover which I have started some time ago.

Both patterns are from farbenmix: Herz & Alles Dabei

Purse for little things

I sewed a purse for bric-a-brac. You don't need such a purse, but it's always good to have one (..or two, three...) I like these little items, cause there are wonderful presents.

The pattern from farbenmix is called "Patience"

I love this Bag

I sewed a bag again. This is always a very nice and useful birthday present. The pattern is "Dame" (once more) and I sewed some little matching purses with key rings. The purses can be attached to a carabiner thats inside the bag.

Soft Play Dice

As a little gift I sewed some dice filled with foam. I used colorful scaps of fabric. And the most important feature: babys don't get hurt while playing with this soft cubes.

I plan to sew some more of these play dice for Christmas.

Wood Trivet

I have made some trivets. You can put a hot cooking pot on it to avoid damaging the dining table. The trivets are made of wood and painted with acylic color.

These boots are made for walking

And these boots are made for a little baby boy. These were the 2nd shoes I have made.

 I wasn't that successful with my 1st pair of shoes. :(
